This 1850 sq. ft. golf-course retreat (2BR, 2½ baths) with private pool has everything you need for an exceptional stay in Sun City West. Enjoy one of the best views along the golf course!

The home's serene landscape seen from most every window matches the beauty of the well appointed Southwest interior. This open, contemporary home has 10’ ceilings and a feeling of spaciousness.

The light-filled living room is open to a dining area and office. Enjoy our 50-inch flat screen TV or a good book on the sofa. A fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter top makes meal preparation a delight. The kitchen adjoins a comfortable Arizona room where you can relax in lounge chairs and watch HDTV or gaze outside the bay window from the kitchen table.

There is a washer/dryer and cleaning supplies in the laundry room. The double-car garage with remotes is available for your use.

Sunsets are particularly stunning. Enjoy lounging poolside in the privately fenced back yard. Watch the ducks on the pond and the golfers on the green (or in the sand trap).

About Emily

My husband and I live in Durango, CO. We purchased this property as a retreat from the winter temps and snow. However, because skiing is still top on our list, we found we are not yet using our home as often as we anticipated. So we decided to share our home with you.

Emily purchased this house in 2010

Why Emily chose Arizona

We fell in love with this home's beauty and serenity.

The combination of access to large-city amenities while living in a well landscaped and secure community attracted us to Sun City West.

What makes this house unique

We furnished our lovely home for ourselves, so you will find everything you'll need for a comfortable, 'feel-at-home' stay. The kitchen appliances are new and include a 5-burner gas range and built-in micro range oven. The home also features a water softener. Additional space is available for your use in the third garage, but we owners are using some of that area for storage.

Great for Relaxing and Bird Watching

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying all of July at this Sun City West house. The house was clean, well maintained, kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans, plates, utensils, etc, internet was fast, and the backyard with pool was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Also enjoyed watching the golfers and the trains passing by. Emily was very easy to work with and was always prompt with responses.

We are bird watchers and were pleasantly surprised at the number of birds viewable from the house. Saw Great Blue Heron, Green Heron, Black-crowned Night Heron, Killdeer, Cactus Wren, Great-tailed Grackle, White-faced Ibis, Neotropic Cormorants, Double-crested Cormorant, Great Horned Owl, Gila Woodpecker, Gilded Flicker, Costa's Hummingbird, Anna's Hummingbird, White-winged Dove, Red-tailed Hawk, Gambel's Quail, Curve-billed Thrasher, Mallard, Eurasian Collared Dove, Mourning Dove, Inca Dove, Say's Phoebe, Mexican Duck, Turkey Vulture, European Starling, House Finch, Northern Mockingbird, Lesser Nighthawk, and more. House location is also close to many sites with good bird watching opportunities including Tres Rios Wetlands, Glendale Recharge Ponds, Desert Botanical Garden, and Thunderbird Park.

If I ever return to Sun City West I would again rent this house and would definitely recommend this home to a friend.

Love, loved, our stay in this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely one of the nicest places we have ever stayed! The owners were just wonderful to work with, and their home is fabulous!!! It is just perfect inside and outside, and it is very, very well equipped with everything you would want or need! The location of the home was just great, easy to access and get to wherever you need to go at any time. It was a perfect area to walk in, and then the backyard was so relaxing to sit in and watch the gorgeous AZ sunsets! The home is so cozy and extremely comfortable! The TV's were excellent! We were so pleased to be able to stay here and we are really hoping that we can come back and enjoy this wonderful property again!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Home was exactly as described right down to the sunset! We enjoyed our stay immensely. Everything was comfortable, clean and nicely furnished and the kitchen was a wonderful place to prepare meals and enjoy the large recliners. Emmy was always very helpful, prompt and available for questions or concerns. We were pleased to use the rec centre passes during our stay for golf games at several of the Sun City West courses. We also found the suggested list of restaurants and tourist spots to be helpful - very much enjoyed the Desert Botanical Garden (Phoenix, Wickenberg (better than Old Town in Scottsdale), the Hassayampa River Preserve (a Nature Conservancy property) and the Arrowhead Mall. A big thrill was to experience a night blooming cactus in the backyard. We would definitely book this home again.

Beautiful home and excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

From our first contact with Emily and through our arrival and departure we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This home exceeded our expectations in all ways and the entire experience was great. The house is clean, current, beautifully and tastefully furnished and fully equipped, we didn't want for anything. Highly recommend the property and looking forward to our return later this year! Great location with easy access to dining, recreation and shopping. We recommend hiking at the White Tank Mountains when you are in the area.

10x Better Than Our Greatest Imagination!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for one week beginning June 1. When we walked in, the WOW factor was amazing!!! Everything was fabulous about this home: the pool area with view of golf course and huge pond, the refreshing pool that we used for hours every day (it was very hot weather for we Alaskans), the gas barbecue worked great, the little quail, bunny rabbits, and all sorts of other interesting little creatures, the tasteful furnishings and art throughout the home, this list could go on and on.

Emily was wonderful to work with and always answered her phone promptly when we had a question. So many upgrades and special touches... The master bathroom is a work of art -- the sinks, faucets, tile, shower, private toilet room, all to die for in sheer beauty and luxury! Everything was immaculate and I truly felt like I was in 5-star accommodations.

Every morning, we'd wake up to the most amazing colors coming in through those huge bay windows in the master bedroom. I'm telling you, I fell in love with this home. In fact, we liked it so much, we are in the process of buying a home nearby that is the same exact floor plan! Sun City West is a great place to be, especially if you need to thaw out from a cold winter!!

Luxury and Comfort with an Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful and well maintained home. Beginning from our very first inquiry we found Emily to be sincere and more than helpful in planning and implementing our vacation. The home is even nicer than the pictures reflect, and the pictures are impressive. I found pretty much everything that I needed, was surprised even little things like toothpicks were in the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets and bedding were of good quality. The home was immaculate and well cared for.The private pool was wonderful, especially the second week when the temperatures soared. There is a pond behind the property alongside the golf course which I had not noticed in the pictures. It was fun to watch the variety of birds in it, also saw a huge fish among the reeds. Emily also recommended some restaurants which was very helpful although we did enjoy barbecuing in the very private and beautiful back yard. We drove to Sedona one day and I wished we had arranged to stay over for one night just to take our time to enjoy the sights. It is breathtaking beautiful! My husband enjoyed the many golf courses and I did some shopping because you can never have enough shoes! I have already recommend this home, in fact on the trip back on the plane. We have other plans for next year but we do hope to come back to this perfect vacation home away from home! Thanks Emily so much for sharing your special place with us. Loretta and Jim
